5. Performance, Conclusion
CyQve MP3 Deluxe - Page 5
- General performance
After we have tested the CyQve MP3 Deluxe player for one week in various cases we can say that in general it worked well among with some glitches that will trouble user. The drive playbacks all possible MP3, MP2 variations we tried (32-48Khz from 8Kbps-320Kbps, CBR/ABR/VBR). Also it can playback 8cm AudioCDs correctly. The weight and its dimensions are small enough for everyday portable use. The included batteries will last for around 4hours of continues playback for MP3 files and around 3hours for CD-DA discs. The drive has a very quiet operation and the included headphones offer adequate sound fidelity. The package is considered as complete, although better MP3 encoding software could be included.
On the positive side, we can list:
- Small dimensions, low weight
- Can playback ANY MP3 file, bit rate and encoding method (CBR/VBR)
- Retail package includes re-chargeable batteries
- The LCD screen is scrollable displaying a variation of information
- Includes Equalizer, anti-skip technology and A-B function
- The player's menu can be offered in various languages (optional)
On the negative side, we can list:
- Displays only 12 characters of the file
- Anti-shock protection doesn't work so well with Audio-CDs, since it skips very easily
- No track elapsed time display
To sum up, we could say that the player is a good buy for all users who need a complete portable MP3 playback solution. The drive can be found at 132 Euros in the European territory at UK and in Spain under the ODM brandname; Rimax. Later on middle of Auguest, a new version named WalkieMusic MP3 Fashsion will be added with backlit (Blue) and dual-language (English and Spanish). This new one will support the multi-language exactly, yet for the current one Deluxe version will not built with multi-language support.
